Investing in the Future

For 60 years, Saint Simon Parish School has been providing an outstanding education, where students are guided by Catholic values, encouraged to discover and develop their talents, and inspired to lead lives of service. In September, the U.S. Secretary of Education recognized Saint Simon Parish School as a 2021 National Blue Ribbon School, one of only 23 private schools in the nation to receive the award that year.

We now have the opportunity to build on that success, to invest in the future and ensure that Saint Simon Parish School remains one of the top elementary schools in Silicon Valley.

A Home for STEM-related Activities

The school is proposing to build a new multipurpose room that would enable a robust implementation of science in grades K-5, provide a home for the school’s robotics program, and serve as a location for various STEM-related after-school activities. The multipurpose room would add about 1,000 square feet to the school’s administrative wing by adding a classroom adjacent to the library.

Key Features

• Greenhouse window for growing seedlings

• Dedicated space for after-school robotics as well as storage for robotics fields and supplies

• Movable tables for collaborative student work

• Engineered steel strut grid for suspending experiments

• 3-D printer for makerspace projects

• Weather station with large data display

• Open ceiling designed to expose mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems

• Blackout shades to facilitate experiments with light

• Two large sinks for students to clean up after messy activities

• Teacher prep area with sink, microwave, and refrigerator

Building on Our Success

The required funds needed for this project are $2.1 m. We have raised approximately $2m to date.  Construction is underway and is expected to be completed this fall.
